While driving heard a grinding noise then a squeeking noise. When pressing brakes started going to the floor. Pulled over and saw that when pressing brakes front drivers side tire moved, leaning in, then moved back when brake was released. Recently replaced both wheel bearings.

    Agreed, definitely bearing install problem. Next time recheck work thoroughly.
